russian dating

russian dating and marriage traditions range from the rigid rules and regulations formulated in old times to the modern, no holds barred attitude of today’s youth. In the old days, in monarchy Russia men and women were pretty much kept apart until the matchmaker made an arrangement, introduced the two young people, talked with both sets of parents and set the wedding date.

in more modern times, in this great, progressive country, the idea of keeping the russian women and men they marry apart, especially during the marriage ceremony would be absurd. But, there are some traditions that remain in place even to this day. Based around the time-honored practice of motherly guilt, mothers hold sway over their sons and daughters and any good child will go out of his way to keep them happy.
